How should I care for oily skin?

1. Sebum is what causes oily skin.

If the skin on your face tends to look shiny, particularly in the T-zone, then no question about it, your skin is producing too much sebum. This may be genetic, or it may be down to external factors such as stress, unhealthy lifestyle, hormonal imbalance or an overly harsh beauty routine.

2. The ultimate beauty routine for oily skin

How should you care for oily skin? To achieve a beautiful complexion, use gentle products that work to eliminate excess sebum. Morning and night, start with a targeted cleanser. This step is crucial for healthy skin. After cleansing your face, apply the PORE CONTROL SERUM. Containing grapevine flower cell extract, this serum is perfect for preventing pores from dilating as a result of excess sebum production. Next, moisturise your skin with a light, non-greasy moisturiser to purify and mattify skin. Once or twice a week before bed, treat yourself to an SOS PURE MASK with purifying green and white clay and organic alpine willow herb extract. This mask's clay-based formula purifies and re-balances skin for a healthier, fresher and clearer complexion in just 10 minutes.

3. Your go-to kit

The 2-in-1 Pore Perfecting Matifying Kit is perfect for touch-ups throughout the day. The kit contains blotting papers and smoothing powder for a flawless complexion from morning to night.
